Create email address Exchange 2010

I'm looking to create an email address only in Exchange 2010.  We have a process that creates an email that is sent in bulk to a group of people and until we upgraded to Exchange 2010, this was working by having just a name as the sender.
It appears Exchange 2010 must require an actual email address so my question is 2-fold
First, can I create just an email address that we can use to send this bulk email -- and if not
Second - how do I put restrictions on the mailbox so it can NOT receive email, only send email?

Hi

You can create a mailbox to do this and in the process to protect it you can do the following:

1. Hide it from the address book (In Exhange Management Console, select mailbox/properties and tick Hide from Exchange address lists)

2. Restrict who is aloud to send mail to this account (Also in mailbox/properties select Mail Flow Settings tab and configure Message Delivery Restrictions)

Hope this helps

If I select to reject senders "from the following list" and don't put anything in the list, will this reject messages from everyone?
If I select accept messages from "only senders in the following list" and again don't put anything in the list, will it not accept any messages?

All you need to do is select Accept Messages from "only senders in the following list" this will reject all messages regardless of who there from.
